EY Japan (headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo; Chairperson & CEO: Moriaki Kida), today released its annual integrated report, which describes its accomplishments in the creation of sustainable long-term value during FY22 (July 2021 - June 2022).

Based on its purpose of Building a better working world, EY has been working with stakeholders around the globe for nearly a decade. To that end, we have defined four long-term values (client value, people value, societal value and financial value), and released information on our progress for value creation in each value dimension. To create long-term value, we focus on co-creation with our external alliance partners, and some of our initiatives in this area are also detailed in this new integrated report.

The four value dimensions of the Long-Term Value (LTV) Framework: people value, client value, societal value and financial value

Key progress:

People value

EY seeks to become an organization shaped by diversity, inclusiveness - mutual respect, and equity (through providing support according to circumstances). In FY22, we launched the Diverse Abilities Center to promote recruiting neurodiverse individuals and improve their working conditions. To fulfill the EY purpose, we believe that motivation on the part of each EY person to realize their own purpose (My Purpose) is vital to make an impact on society. We deploy these outcomes in the services we provide to clients, which integrate our purpose with our business activities.

  • EY launched the Diverse Abilities Center (DAC) with the aim of recruiting and improving the working conditions of neurodiverse individuals. This organization, which experiments with flexible workstyles designed to match each individual and enables them to acquire specialist skills and pursue careers, hired 22 neurodiverse individuals (Japan).
  • Prizewinner at British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ) “British Business Awards 2022” for the DAC launch, DE&I Champion of the Year (Japan)
  • The Pride Index*2 recognizing the company’s work to promote LGBT+ inclusion gave “Rainbow” award*3 for two consecutive years and top rating, “Gold” award for six consecutive years (Japan)
  • 968 EY Badges*4 awarded (FY22 target achieved) for a cumulative total of 3,013 EY Badges awarded (Japan)
  • Only Big Four organization on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list every year for the last 24 years (Global)
  • Average of 56 hours training per person (Japan)
  • 100% Flex & Remote adoption rate (Japan)

Client value

By adopting a team approach involving the four service lines of Assurance, Tax, Consulting, and Strategy and Transactions, EY  can nurture, optimize and maintain long-term value for clients. In FY22, we provided client value and social value through sustainability-related services for over 3,000 clients globally.

  • Fortune Global 500 - percentage of companies in index served: Audit clients 27%, non-audit clients 60%, all other companies 13% (all Global)
  • EY ranking for audit market share of IPOs*5 by deal numbers: Global #1, Japan #1 (2022)
  • Number of ecosystem partner companies: 99 (Global)
  • Sustainability engagements delivered to over 3,000 clients (Global)
  • More than 60,000 technologists (Global)

Social value

EY emphasizes sustainability, and aims to build trust in capital markets and have a positive impact on society and the planet. We have had a positive impact on approximately 590,000 lives through EY Ripples, our own corporate responsibility (CR) program, and are working to build frameworks in areas such as biodiversity.

  • 2,153 people from EY Japan participated in EY Ripples*6  activities in Japan

  • Sustainability leader for outstanding work helping companies achieve sustainability goals (Green Quadrant: ESG & Sustainability Consulting 2022 survey by Verdantix) (Global)

Financial value

On the financial side, maintenance of high revenue over the long term

  • Year-on-year growth in revenue (FY22): +16.4% (Global), +12.6% (Japan)
  • 8-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) (FY14–FY22): 8.4% (Global), 6.2% (Japan)

To create long-term value, EY also focuses on co-creation with external alliance partners. The integrated report presents examples of this, as it features discussions with key people from the fields of regional revitalization, alliances, and rule-making, and among EY people on the topics of My Purpose and career development. During these discussions, the participants talk about initiatives and the outlook for the future in their respective fields as they re-explore the role of EY in society and ways it can contribute.

Comment from Moriaki Kida, EY Japan Chairperson & CEO

“The driving force to create long-term value comes from the strong connections between the EY purpose and the passion of each person at EY. We will continue to invest in human capital in tandem with working on co-creation among groups and with external partners, to strengthen our ability to provide solutions as we endeavor to build a better working world. And while maintaining audit independence, EY will continuously explore and engage in disruption (creative destruction) to provide a wider range of services that fit with our purpose. We are choosing to embrace disruption not because it is demanded by society or regulatory authorities, but because we see it as the concept that will mold our next generation. We hope you will continue to track the progress of EY and EY Japan  as we take on challenges, so that we can evolve to build a better working world and take a further leap forward.”

*1 The word “neurodiversity” is a combination of the word “neuro” and “diversity”. The concept is based on the idea that “differences in the brain, nerves, and various characteristics derived from them at the individual level are mutually respected as diversity, and that these differences should be used by society.” In particular, this concept views the phenomena that occur in developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and learning disabilities as “natural and normal variations in the human genome,” rather than as a lack of ability or superiority or inferiority.

*2 PRIDE Index: This index was created by a nonprofit group, work with Pride (wwP), as an indicator of how companies have implemented initiatives to promote LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace, and is composed of five categories: 1. Policy, 2. Representation, 3. Inspiration, 4. Development and 5. Engagement/Empowerment.

*3 Rainbow award: The Rainbow award recognizes companies that have promoted initiatives with collective impact based on a mid- to long-term commitment to creating a workplace and society where LGBT+ people can work with pride, along with other stakeholders.

*4 EY Badges: A program through which EY people earn credentials in future-focused skills such as data science, AI, and leadership and then share those skills with other EY people and the market at large. EY Badges may be deemed as portable credentials – awarded based on the same standards around the world and can be kept throughout one’s career.

*5 EY has held the top audit market share of IPOs by deal numbers in Japan for five consecutive years from 2018 to 2022.

*6 EY Ripples: A program that leverages EY people’s professional skills and experience to make a difference in society. EY Ripples focuses on supporting the next generation workforce, working with impact entrepreneurs, and accelerating environmental sustainability.
